Framework for Results – Based Public Sector Management


As part of its development effectiveness agenda, ADB is promoting results-based public sector management in its partner countries. ASB's approach focuses on developing change agents within partner governments to integrate results-based approaches in their PSM. This approach will also promote sustainable demand-driven initiatives that are centered on country systems.

ADB supports the Asia-Pacific Community of Practice on Managing for Development Results (APCoP), comprising senior government officials and engages with them at the international, regional and country level. ADB acts as the Secretariat to APCoP and Ms Farzana Ahmed is the Principal Coordinator. At the

  • international level, APCoP closely collaborates with African and Latin American CoPs on MfDR under the aegis of the OECD to support development themes. It is currently engaged in looking at the themes for the OECD Fourth high Level Forum in Busan (HLF4) that will be held in Korea later this year. The "Busan document" will be the successor to the Paris Declaration;
  • regional level, APCoP members are brought together through training opportunities and seminars to develop results- based standards for PSM, promote good practices, develop knowledge products, share lessons learned and engage in the dialogue with donors. APCoP members are trained at the Singapore Civil Service College amongst other centers of excellence in the region;
  • country level APCoP members are supported through pilot projects working closely with ADB operations.

As past of its contribution to the theme for HLF4, ADB has worked with APCoP and developed a theoretical framework to both analyse results based public sector management in partner countries and to support a principle based approach to capacity development for a results-based PSM. ADB is looking to validate this framework with academe and has already consulted various leading universities in the Philippines, including the Asian Institute of Management, Seoul National University in Korea and is scheduled to present to the University of Indonesia and Universities in Sri Lanka. ADB would like to engage members of the National University of Singapore, working in the areas of public sector management.
